The afternoon started off great with awesome tailgate, and then Army Capt. Cody Stanton, Army Sgt. Greg Mack, Marine Sam Johnson and Marine David Joseforsky, who just retired in Illinois after 30 years of service and moved to North Carolina wishes were granted as the Carolina Panthers hosted the New Orleans Saints.
Not only was History made during the Army vs. Navy Game on December 10, 2022 but History graced the game as well. Warrior wishes was honored to host 103 guest at the game including 9 legends from WWII. Anyone that was made aware of these 9 gentlemen that helped save the world wanted to meet them and show their respect. They even received a salute from an active duty Army Ranger Colonel.
I think everyone will agree that it was an great overtime even if the ending was not what some of us wanted. I overhead a young Army Cadet say on my out of the stadium, “There is nothing like going to a football game with almost 100,00 of your closest friends.” I think she pretty much nailed it.
Not enough praise can go out to the Philadelphia Fire Department, Police Department and Homeland Security for their respect, dignity and going above and beyond for our WWII veterans and the Philadelphia Eagles staff.
Thank you to all of our Volunteers that put in hundreds of hours of time, our sponsors for their generous donations, and most of all our Veterans because with their sacrifices we would be nothing.
